-Town of Valdese Mission Statement adopted April 2, 2018

Valdese, in the heart of Burke County is located in the foothills of Western North Carolina "where the Piedmont meets the Mountains." The Catawba River traverses Burke County west to east creating a wide valley and Lake Rhodhiss. The valley is intersected by I-40, US Highways 64 and 70, and NC Highways 18 and 181. Interstates 26, 77, and 85 are within a 50-mile radius. Founded on the rich traditions of 19th century Waldensian settlers, the Town of Valdese honors the heritage and determination of the Waldenses with its historic attractions, parks and annual events. Bordered by Mineral Springs Mountain to the south and the beautiful waters of Lake Rhodhiss to the north, Valdese is the perfect destination for a small town experience surrounded by nature. The Town of Valdese website has been created to assist citizens, businesses and visitors with up to date information about the services the Town of Valdese provides.
